Reducing the stigma on behavioral health at work
Not long ago, it would be considered somewhat taboo to bring up mental health issues in the workplace, and even in social conversation. If someone was in treatment for depression, anxiety or a more several condition, it was often kept quiet. The same has been true of addiction, both for alcohol and drugs.   But recent years have seen a recognition that addiction and mental health conditions are diseases that deserve the same concern and care as physical health conditions. That’s led to public…

Medical royal colleges and homeless charities call for doctors to receive mandatory training in keeping homeless patients off the streets
The Royal College of Physicians (RCP), along with seven other medical royal colleges and homeless charities, has called on the Government to urgently address the needs of homeless people treated in the NHS. The organisations made their call in a collective response to the government’s consultation on the Homelessness Reduction Act (HRA), which includes a duty to refer homeless patients in Accident and Emergency departments to their local housing authority. Since its implementation in 2017, it is still unclear whether the HRA’s mandate that hospitals must refer homeless people on, is having any real benefit. Anecdotal e...

Community Health Workers Are Vital; Governments Should Be Paying Them
Illness is universal, health care is not. Over half of the world’s 7.3 billion people, including 1 billion in rural communities, lack access to health care. Approximately 13 million children still go without a single dose of any vaccine. Nearly 9 million newborns, children and mothers still die each year from preventable or treatable conditions. Compounding this crisis is a massive health-worker shortage, forecast to grow to 18 million by 2030. Training more doctors is necessary, but because doctors are concentrated in cities, they alone are insufficient to close this gap. What if the residents of rural communities&#...

Swiftly Ending Tobacco Epidemic Requires Government Action, Not Empty Promises
By Mark HurleyWASHINGTON DC, Oct 23 2019 (IPS) New information published in the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report shows that action taken by just 11 countries – most of them low- or middle-income – has resulted in 20 million fewer adult tobacco users in 2017 compared with 2008.

The conditions of human life began to improve with the Enlightenment of the 18th century, and we are better off now by many measures: food access, health, lifespan, and so on. But it hasn’t been an unbroken line of advancement. In the last three decades, U.S. death rates have risen steeply from suicide and compulsive consumption of alcohol and drugs, which Princeton University professors Anne Case and Angus Deaton famously termed “deaths of despair.” Exceeding these deaths of despair by tenfold are rising deaths from type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and cardiovascular disease—caused significantly by c...
